Jack Wilshere is on target to return to the Hammers first team squad within a month.
The midfielder – having undergone surgery on his ankle could now to be back in time for the game against Burnley on November 3.
Wilshere has been out of action since the home defeat against Wolves when it was discovered that a screw had loosened in his ankle from previous surgery whilst at Arsenal.
He was admitted to hospital and underwent a new procedure soon afterwards with head of medical Richard Collinge claiming he would only need a short period of rest and rehab.
With Manu Lanzini now kicking balls again and Winston Reid looking to return in January the only long long term problem surrounds Carlos Sanchez.
But assuming there are no injuries from the internationals involving our players this week and next we will be in decent shape for the visit of Spurs on the 20th.
